RiverLink invites those interested in becoming volunteers to attend a monthly volunteer information session on Wednesday, Jan. 11, at 10:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. The sessions are held in the conference room of the RiverLink office at 170 Lyman Street in the River Arts District (map).
Volunteers can fill out and print a volunteer application ahead of time or get one at the meeting, meet the RiverLink staff and find the best fit for donating their time and efforts.
The 5:30 session will feature the presentation “Who was Wilma Dykeman?” by Jim Stokely, one of Dykeman’s sons.
This is a great way to find out more about RiverLink’s work in the watershed and on the Wilma Dykeman RiverWay, a 17-mile greenway following the French Broad and Swannanoa Rivers.
To attend, RSVP by Tuesday, Jan. 10
to (828) 252-8474, ext. 11 or via e-mail at email@example.com
